Candle Care

  • NO.1 ‎FULL MELT POOL IS KEY

    The first time you burn your candle, let the wax melt completely, all the way to the edges of the jar. This is absolutely essential, and will take 3 to 4 hours. If you do not let the wax melt to the edges during the first burn, you will have wax residue on the sides of your vessel for each subsequent burn.

  • NO.2 TRIM YOUR WICK

    EACH TIME YOU RE-LIGHT YOUR CANDLE, TRIM THE WICK DOWN TO 1/4 INCH LONG, OR, YOU CAN USE YOUR FINGERS TO SIMPLY PINCH OFF THE BURNT BITS OFF OF THE TOP. YOUR CANDLE WILL NOT LIGHT IF YOU LEAVE THIS BURNT PART ON.

    YOUR WICK NEEDS TO BE 1/4 INCH LONG BECAUSE IF YOUR WICK IS ANY LONGER, THE FLAME MAY BECOME TOO BIG WHICH WILL BURN THROUGH YOUR CANDLE QUICKLY. LARGE FLAME IS ALSO VERY DANGEROUS. YOU WANT A NICE STRONG BURN WITHOUT LETTING YOUR FLAME GET OUT OF CONTROL.

  • RESPECT YOUR CANDLE'S BOUNDARIES

    AFTER THE FIRST BURN, ONLY BURN YOUR CANDLE FOR NO MORE THAN 4 HOURS AT A TIME. IF YOU . LET IT BURN MORE THAN 4 HOURS, YOU WILL SHORTEN THE LIFE OF YOUR CANDLE AS THE FLAME WILL BECOME STRONGER.

  • KEEP AWAY FROM DRAFTS, PETS, AND CHILDREN

    KEEP YOUR CANDLE AWAY FROM DRAFTS AND ANY FLAMMABLE MATERIALS. THIS ONE SEEMS OBVIOUS BUT DRAFTS AND MOVEMENT AROUND YOUR CANDLE CAN CAUSE BLACK SOOT TO BUILD UP ON THE INSIDE OF YOUR VESSEL, WHICH ISN'T APPEALING! MAKE SURE TO TRIM YOUR WICK TO 1/4 AN INCH AND KEEP AWAY FROM DRAFTS, PETS, AND CHILDREN!

  • STOP BURN WHEN 1/4 WAX REMAINS

    MAKE SURE TO STOP BURNING YOUR CANDLE WHEN 1/4 OF WAX REMAINS AT THE BOTTOM, AND DON'T FORGET TO REUSE THE CANDLE VESSEL!

  • REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLE!!!!!

    YOUR CANDLE IS FINISHED WHEN THERE IS ONLY 1/2 INCH OF WAX LEFT AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR JAR. OUR WICK HOLDERS HAVE RAISED EDGES WHICH PREVENT YOU FROM BURNING YOUR CANDLE PAST A CERTAIN POINT ONCE YOU GET TO THE BOTTOM. THIS IS BECAUSE YOUR JAR WILL GET VERY HOT AND BECOME UNSAFE.

    CLEAN OUT YOUR VESSEL AND REUSE IT AS A PLANTER, TUMBLER, OR FOR STORAGE! CHECK OUT OUR INSTAGRAM FOR WAYS TO CLEAN OUT YOUR VESSEL. YOU CAN ALSO FREEZE YOUR JAR AND THE BOTTOM WAX WILL POP OUT, YOU CAN THEN USE WHAT REMAINS FOR WAX MELTS!
